Ron­aldo goal gets ap­plause, boos amid al­le­ga­tion of rape

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - FROM THE COVER -

Cris­tiano Ron­aldo’s goal in a 2-0 vic­tory for Ju­ven­tus over Udi­nese was met by ap­plause and boos in Udine, Italy, as the in­ter­na­tional soc­cer star faces a rape al­le­ga­tion.

He leaped into the air with an em­phatic dou­ble fist pump, as he’s of­ten marked his goals, and then let his team­mates con­grat­u­late him.

Just over a week ago, Kathryn May­orga filed a civil law­suit say­ing she was raped by Ron­aldo in Las Ve­gas in 2009. Po­lice have re­opened an in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Ron­aldo has de­nied the ac­cu­sa­tion. He was not avail­able for ques­tions af­ter the match.

■ Manch­ester United man­ager Jose Mour­inho lashed out at his crit­ics af­ter his team’s thrilling 3-2 come-from-be­hind vic­tory over New­cas­tle in Manch­ester, Eng­land, call­ing the at­tacks against him “wicked­ness” and “man-hunt­ing.”

United’s man­ager has been un­der mount­ing spec­u­la­tion he’ll be fired be­cause of a string of poor re­sults and for fre­quent ver­bal at­tacks on his own play­ers, but he came out fight­ing af­ter the team earned its first win in five matches.

■ Ever Guz­man scored two goals, and San An­to­nio FC went on to a 3-1 vic­tory over Lights FC at San An­to­nio.

Sammy Ochoa gave the Lights (7-18-7) the lead in the 12th minute. But Guz­man equal­ized just be­fore half­time and put San An­to­nio (1412-7) up for good in the 48th minute.
